    Weight of 3/4" mdf sheet?

    is this true?

    The primary drawback to this product is weight. A 3/4" x 4' x 8' sheet can weigh as much as 70 to 90 pounds per sheet. The density of the core is expressed as the weight of a one cubic foot (1'x1'x1') block of the material. Therefore, an MDF sheet using a 48# (pound) core, will weigh 96 pounds. (48"x96"x3/4"= 2 cubic feet)

    3/4" MDF is pretty light compared to 1" MDF. That stuff is almost impossible to work with unless you have a great wood working setup.

    Thats why I suggested you use Trupan, which is a whole bunch lighter than MDF. Your car is gonna be much slower now and you are gonna have to get used to braking a little sooner.

    Re: Weight of 3/4" mdf sheet?

    What I don't understand is why people complain about the weight of MDF while they're using multiple sheets of it. It's heavy, that's obvious. Use TruPan if you want to save weight.
